Funny meta-coverage of the Tribune Co. boardroom breakdown focusing on one Charles K. Bobrinskoy, a capital management executive whose firm owns a chunk of the controversy in question. Bobrinskoy, it seems, deserves a spot in the Bush Administration: this man does not veer from the talking points (of which there are but two). He's such an on-message broken record that encountering his quotes in the steady stream of these stories is apt, as the CJR Daily puts it, to drive readers "quietly insane."
